  • 2011 Ligonier National Conference - Session 13 (John Piper)

    from Tim Challies Mar 26, 2011 Category: Events

    The final session of this year National Conference went to John Piper who was asked to reflect on the twenty-fifth anniversary of his groundbreaking book Desiring God. Much of what he did this morning was summarize what he has been teaching all these years, because in all these years, he has not changed the focus of his ministry. But he sought to address some of the misunderstandings and to fill in some of the gaps that have been raised in the years since he wrote the book. Keep Reading
  • 2011 Ligonier National Conference - Session 12 (Robert Godfrey)

    from Keith Mathison Mar 26, 2011 Category: Events

    The conference continued today with a message by Ligonier teaching fellow Dr. Robert Godfrey on the topic “Pleasing God.” Dr. Godfrey explained that when he saw his message title, his first though was “Can we please God?” He reminded us that Scripture says God is pleased with His people. It’s amazing that as powerfully as Scripture speaks about the continuing sinfulness of even the regenerated, it also speaks about how God does delight in His people. How can both be true at the same time? Keep Reading

  • 2011 National Conference - Session 9 (R.C. Sproul)

    from Alex Chediak Mar 25, 2011 Category: Events

    Humans in all cultures have an affinity for clothing and a sense that nakedness is shameful. We see this, for example, in the behavior of Noah's sons (Shem and Japheth) who covered their father's nakedness while not looking upon him.  Adam and Eve, when they sinned, had to be clothed by God himself in this first act of redemption.  One of the indications of our culture's decadence is the lack of shame in nakedness (i.e., the prevalence of fornication, even among some regular church attendees).

  • 2011 Ligonier National Conference - Session 7 (Steven Lawson)

    from Alex Chediak Mar 25, 2011 Category: Events

    This address from Pastor Steve Lawson was entitled Worshiping the Triune God. Worship in heaven is worship at its best. Pleasing God, not others, is what matters in worship.  But there is a new way in worship in our day – one that seeks to please the unconverted person, to be cool, not transcendent and reverent.  The preacher, likewise, is be trendy, not weighty, and more therapeutic than theological Worship, however, should be a foretaste of heaven.  Let’s take a look at the worship of heaven in Revelation 4.

  • 2011 Ligonier National Conference - Session 5 (R.C. Sproul)

    from Tim Challies Mar 25, 2011 Category: Events

    R.C. Sproul began the second day of the Ligonier Ministries National Conference with a talk titled “Defending the Faith.” This was a talk on apologetics, reminding us that every Christian is responsible to be able to defend the faith. Dr. Sproul spoke at length about Augustine and Augustine’s attempts to defend the symbiotic relationship between faith and reason. Augustine wanted to reach an assurance of our faith that is at the level of certainty. Today most apologists believe that philosophical certainty about issues like the existence of God is a fool’s errand doomed to failure. Augustine did not share that view and neither does Sproul.
